To the Editors of the CRIMSON:
The CRIMSON article of Saturday, March 9, 1968, (concerning tutoring), contains a number of inaccuracies. The decision to transfer the function of tutoring qua tutoring to the volunteer pool came as a result of a long series of discussions about tutoring, starting with the PBH retreat and the intensive re-evaluation of programs currently going on in the House. The decision came in light of a number of new programs which will be started next year. The Cambridge Advancement Tutorial is one of these.
Cambridge Advancement Tutorial (C.A.T.) involves approximately 75 volunteers in an educational talent search in the Cambridge area. In addition to counselling students, volunteers will work with the schools from which the students come as well as the parents of the students.
The decision is therefore not specifically concerned with Tutors Committee but affects the entire House. In addition, Tutors Committee has not been scrapped. Approximately one half of the Tutors Committee volunteers are "minimally committed" one to two hours per week volunteers. It is these students whom the Executive Committee would like to see join the Metropolitan Council Volunteer Pool. Thus far, however, no decision has been reached regarding the continuation or deailed structure of the other parts of the Tutors Committee program--tutoring in Settlement Houses, other community centers, and Companion ("Big Brother") tutoring.
